Description Paul Howarth 2006-01-31 14:29:28 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:

Certain applications like to defer the decision to use a particular module till
runtime. This is possible in perl, and is a useful trick in situations where
the type of data is not known at compile time and the application doesn't wish
to pre-compile modules to handle all types of data it can work with. Loading
modules at runtime can also provide flexible interfaces for perl modules.
Modules can let the programmer decide what modules will be used by it instead
of hard-coding their names.

Class::Loader is an inheritable class that provides a method, _load(), to load
a module from disk and construct an object by calling its constructor. It also
provides a way to map modules' names and associated metadata with symbolic
names that can be used in place of module names at _load().
